A man named Eugene Franklin Skinner is the namesake of Eugene. Eugene City was the name of this settlement until 1889. Mr. Skinner constructed his first cabin in the region. In 1850, the cabin formally became an official post office and was also used as a trading post. This settlement was called Skinners Mudhole during this period. In 1853, the settlement was relocated and named Eugene City. The year 1862 brought the incorporation of Eugene as a city. Sometime later, Mr. Skinner operated a ferry service across the Willamette River.
Established some years sooner than the University of Oregon, Columbia College was the first major educational institution in the region. Inside of four years, this college was devastated by two major fires. The college elected not to rebuild again following the second fire. The former location of Columbia Collage was in the southern portion of Eugene, that was known as College Hill. These days, there is no college located there.
Originally, Eugene raised the funding required to open a public university. This university later became known as the University of Oregon, in the hopes of transforming the small settlement into a hub for learning. A bill was passed by the Legislative Assembly that created the University of Oregon as a state institution in 1872. During the competition for the state university, Eugene bested the close by settlement of Albany. A member of the settlement named J. Henderson donated the hilltop property for the campus that overlooked Eugene in 1873.
The regents elected the first facility members and named a man named John Wesley Johnson as the president after 1876, when the university was first opened. That same year the first students registered. In 1877, The first building, known as Deady Hall was completed. This was done in honor of the community leader as well as the first Board of Regents President named Judge Matthew P. Deady.
In 1889, Eugene City was renamed to Eugene. Except for the early 1980’s, when a downturn in the lumber industry that resulted in high unemployment, all throughout the majority of the 1900’s, Eugene grew rapidly. Eugene started attracting more high tech companies by 1985, and industries had recovered.
